check to see if the carb bolts are tight. possible faulty float or incorrect float level in carb. check vacum hose from intake to power assist, which is what the master cylinder is bolted to, for leaks. make sure battery is secured so it wont ground out against fender. air filter plugged?fuel filter getting plugged? incorrect or worn arm on mechanical fuel pump. faulty fuel pump, leaking.


pcv valve


I had that same problem with my truck, try and put it in neutral when coming to a stop, if it stops the problem, then you know it's the tranny, just a sugestion

I have been going through that same problem for two weeks now. For me, it was a combination of things. Basically, it was vacuum leaks from various locations the most important being the EGR valve. It had a hole in the diaphragm and wasn't closing completely. Then there was the intake manifold gasket, PCV valve grommet, incorrectly routed vacuum lines and spark plug gap.

I think the single most important issue was the EGR valve.

What causes exhaust pipe metal sounding rattle from right rear of 1981 Corvette automatic at 1300 rpm in any gear but no rattle in neutral?

You need to check all the exhaust pipe hangers, one of them is letting the exhaust rattle against something. Also check muffler heat shield it could also be loose. When transmission in engaged in any gear the engine is torqued to the right, so that is moving the exhaust ( it is attached to the engine so it moves with the engine )into a position to rattle, in neutral the engine is sitting evenly in its mounts so no rattle. May want to check engine and trans mounts too.
